Much like charter schools 20 years ago, the regulating of virtual schools is still very much in its early stage. That parallel is causing many education reform advocates to urge lawmakers to learn from whatever mistakes were made when laws were formed around charter schools and not repeat them with online learning. In fact many are saying laws could be designed and tested with virtual schools that could ultimately yield broader lessons for all schools. Twenty states, including New York and Connecticut, are still without virtual schools and others, including Massachusetts, are new to the model.
